Well I am finally back stateside and it is Friday! Such a good feeling to finally be home and settling back into normalcy and routine. Our trip was one I will never forget! I laughed yesterday because traveling with a friend is really risky- you either come back closer or wanting to kill each other. Luckily, Molly and I are the first option. She was such an amazing travel companion! Really easy going, didn’t get too frustrated when I got us lost on few occasions, enjoyed the local cuisines with me, knew how to keep me calm when I lost my phone (yes that happened), and made me laugh so much my belly seriously hurt. She is such a great addition to my life in Dallas that I am bursting with happiness! Good girlfriends are seriously the best!
Throughout our trip I wore really comfortable clothing. We did so MUCH damn walking it is nuts I gained 5lbs…I guess that explains how much we indulged in the amazing cuisines. I used to try to look really cute when I would travel. Comfort wasn’t important, fashion was. I ended up with many blisters, tears, and a husband who was quite annoyed with all of my complaining. I have since learned that comfort is key. So instead of those really cute new loafers I bought which still need to be broken in, I will wear my Nike sneakers. And instead of that new and really unpractical sweater I can’t wait to show off, I will wear silk button-up’s and a baggy jacket. Again, comfort is key!
Since I have a serious love for silk button-ups I don’t mind investing in them. I have tried every brand of button-ups: Equipment, Gap, Urban Outfitters, Theory, Club Monaco, Zara, ect. I am not lying when I say I might have at least 50 but only wear four. This is because it is nearly impossible to find a button-up that fits boobs bigger than a B cup. I want a button-up that is slightly blousy, but not so blousy I have no shape, and one that doesn’t pull at the buttons. Sounds easy to find, right? WRONG! This is a search that has continued through many years and many dollars spent. Have you ever noticed the broad range button-ups come in? Either you pay an arm and a leg for silk that will probably fit one size too small or you pay for cheap polyester that has no shape nor feel. I was extremely frustrated with my search until I received an e-mail from Everlane.
Everlane is an online shop that you can sign-up to be a member and shop the goods. And do they have goods! Their Petra tote has a two year waiting list and has been seen on dozensssss of celebs. The tote is amazing but let me chat to you about how great their silk blouses are. I first wore their t-shirts and stocked up on them a few years ago. I was unaware they sold silk blouses until that fateful e-mail. Holy excitement!!!! They offered to send me one to try out, which I totally took them up on. Once it arrived I went to the computer and bought THREE MORE (see how I wore another color here)!!! Not only do they fit perfectly, they are so wallet friendly it is a crime not to buy them. 100% silk blouses for $80! Usually these sell for upwards of $250+! They have the most perfect shape and soft feel, I am never shopping for them anywhere else again! I hope you check them out and they are able to fulfill your blousy needs!
this post was NOT sponsored by Everlane I just had to share my love and excitement for them! They are not paying me to say any of this…these blouses are just.that.great!!! Hope you love them as much as I do!
